Project Summary Project Information
public/Photo Gallery/LM2.png

Currently, all cosmetic products such as soap and hair oil used in Haiti are imported from other countries. The ability to produce their own products using resources in Haiti would be a large benefit to the women of Haiti. Our goal is to develop a manufacturing method that will serve as a base for producing carrier oils from a variety of different trees, fruits, nuts, and beans (native and accessible to Haitians) and recipes that will be used to create soaps of various properties.

The goal is to verify the process to extract the oils, determine a safe and high quality recipe for the soap, select tools to manufacture as well as define a manufacturing process, create a plan for molding and packaging, and lastly establish a method to ensure quality control to prevent product spoilage. The solution must be able to use local materials and labor, have a low start up cost, and also a reasonably low cost for the soap.
